Tim Coker (former) Central Regional Manager

I was a senior manager in a national company. I came to see Phil in early December after becoming the subject of a corporate employment investigation.

It’s great to meet a lawyer that while very professional also has a heart and compassion for people going through very stressful situations. After meeting with Phil the stress seemed to instantly melt away. He talked me through the options and helped me make reach a decision regarding my future. I really felt he backed […]

We recently worked with Phil after my husband, a senior executive in a major IT firm, was suddenly sidelined by the company. We had never been in this position before and were quite overcome with the enormity of what happened and the way it was done. We were also overwhelmed with Phil’s support, knowledge and […]

Within half an hour, we had agreed on a course of action and I knew exactly where I stood legally. Phil recommended that I didn’t take legal action in my particular case (which speaks volumes for him as a […]
